Published

on

SAN FRANCISCO /PRNewswire/ — Pacaso, the leading technology-enabled real estate marketplace that helps people buy, co-own, and sell a luxury second home, today announces the launch of Season Two of the “Second Home” podcast, where celebrities, athletes, doctors, designers, tastemakers, and entrepreneurs reveal how they live an enriched life and the role real estate plays in it. Hosted by Pacaso’s own Lucy Wohltman, Senior Vice President of New Development, and Andreas Madsen, Chief Revenue Officer, this season promises profound insights into the transformative power of second homes. It also facilitates intimate conversations about guests’ lives, spanning from discussions with individuals boasting numerous Grand Slam trophies to hearing artist Gray Malin’s captivating account of capturing a photo while suspended from a helicopter.

A conversation with designer and entrepreneur Jenni Kayne is featured in the launch episode of Pacaso’s Second Home podcast.

In Season Two, “Second Home” hosts a diverse lineup of engaging and influential guests, including the multi-talented designer and entrepreneur, Jenni Kayne; fine art photographer, Gray Malin; Optimism Doctor, Deepika Chopra; talented interior designer and hospitality professional, Jay Jeffers; Olympic gold medalist and decorated tennis player, Bethanie Mattek-Sands; and vintner, Jean-Charles Boisset.

“The common thread from guest to guest is they all feel as if they live their best life in their second home. Whether it is a matter of having more time for hobbies or the joy of entertaining friends around the kitchen island, a retreat can translate to happiness,” said Lucy Wohltman.

“From debating pickleball versus tennis to transporting ourselves to second homes in Tahoe, Northern California’s wine country, and beyond, this season was a blast to record,” said Andreas Madsen. “Hearing the incredible range of stories, such as Jenni Kayne’s hygge expertise, and delving into topics ranging from the art of anticipation and its impact on our everyday joy, it’s fascinating to see how each individual personalizes their primary and second homes, creating the ideal setting for their cherished memories.”

Noteworthy Season One guests included actress, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Eva Longoria; point guard for the Los Angeles Clippers John Wall; 16-season NFL quarterback Alex Smith; fitness and wellness pioneer Tracy Anderson; athlete and motivational coach Alex Toussaint; in addition to the well-known Jordyn Woods, Montell and Kristin Jordan, and Arie Luyendyk.

Historic Moment: Space Shuttle Endeavour Takes Its Place at the California Science Center

Witness history as Space Shuttle Endeavour is lifted into its California Science Center home. Streaming live on Space.com at 12:30 a.m. EST.

Published

on

On the early morning of January 30, a monumental event is set to unfold as the space shuttle Endeavour is lifted into its new museum-exhibit home at the California Science Center. This complex operation, involving a towering 450-foot-tall crane, marks a historic achievement in exhibit installation, breaking new ground outside the realms of NASA or Air Force facilities.


Scheduled to commence at 12:30 a.m. EST (0530 GMT), viewers can witness the live action on Space.com, courtesy of the California Science Center, or directly via the Los Angeles museum. The duration of the lift remains uncertain, adding an element of suspense to this unprecedented event.

However, eager spectators should note that the Endeavour display won’t be immediately accessible. The future Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, a significant expansion of the California Science Center, is slated to become Endeavour’s permanent residence. With an anticipated 18-month construction period and subsequent artifact and exhibit installation, an official opening date is yet to be announced.

Endeavour, NASA’s youngest shuttle, holds a remarkable legacy, having completed 25 missions before the retirement of the space shuttle program in 2011. As it takes its place in this new chapter at the California Science Center, the Endeavour will continue to inspire and educate generations to come, embodying the spirit of human exploration and technological achievement.

MIAMI (Newswire.com) – Welcome to the vibrant and chic world of Miami’s art scene, where creativity knows no bounds and the city itself becomes a canvas of expression. At the heart of this sizzling cultural hub is No Vacancy, Miami Beach. The program’s fourth edition presents twelve artists whose site-specific projects are displayed at twelve iconic hotels in Miami Beach.

No Vacancy coincides with Art Week Miami Beach and Art Basel Miami, the epitome of cultural sophistication and creativity, which will take place from December 4th through December 10th. The installations will be viewed from now through December 14th, 2023 to include three of South Beach Group Hotels boutique properties highlighting participants:

Samantha Modder in her series – Source of All Hair, Wearer of All Socks – at Catalina Hotel & Beach Club. It presents a subjective Black woman’s fairytale to process interlocking structures of oppression. Modder is a visual artist working figuratively in pen, collage, and digital media to portray larger-than-life Black, female characters taking up space in real and imagined worlds. 

Marco Inzerillo’s exhibit – SOBEautiful – is displayed at Hotel Croydon. He presents a series of photographs in both color and black and white, highlighting and celebrating the cultural variety of Miami Beach.

Riviera South Beach hosts Carola Bravo – Yield to Immigrants – challenging the concept of migration as a norm and not a crisis. The work addresses the tension between migration issues and the authority of public signs as civic markers. It also questions how manipulating traditional public signs alters their meaning, reminding us about the value of inclusion and our critical role in society.

Against the backdrop of sun-kissed beaches and eclectic neighborhoods, this annual extravaganza transforms Miami into a global art destination, bringing together the world’s leading galleries, artists, and enthusiasts.

Hyundai Motor Group Art Cars Rally in Paris to Support Busan’s Final Bid to Host 2030 World Expo

Published

on


SEOUL/PARIS – Hyundai Motor Group (the Group) is rolling out a fleet of art cars in Paris, France, from November 23–28, in a final drive to promote Busan, South Korea’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo. The voting for that honor will take place at the 173rd General Assembly of the BIE in Paris on November 28.

The Group is providing the Korean delegation with 10 Hyundai IONIQ 6 and Kia EV6, all-electric models, wrapped in a colorful graffiti design featuring symbols of Busan, such as seagulls and the Gwangan Bridge, as well as the slogan ‘BUSAN is Ready.’

The 173rd General Assembly of the BIE will see final presentations from each of the three candidate cities — Busan, South Korea; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and Rome, Italy — elected via secret ballot by each BIE Member State.

For this final campaign, the Group selected IONIQ 6 and EV6 to emphasize Busan’s commitment to hosting a carbon-neutral World Expo under the theme ‘Transforming Our World, Navigating Toward a Better Future.’

The art car fleet will tour major attractions, such as the Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre, as well as areas near the BIE headquarters and the embassies of various countries, promoting Busan’s bid to key officials from BIE member countries and tourists from around the world.

On November 28, the day of the 173rd General Assembly of the BIE, the Group will operate an art car around Le Palais des Congrès d’Issy, the venue of the General Assembly. It will make every effort to win the support of BIE members until the vote is cast.

The Group is running outdoor video advertisements highlighting Busan’s charms on a large scale through 270 digital screens located in major areas of Paris during the month of November. The art cars were also used during the Busan Expo Symposium and K-POP concert held in Paris last month to further promote Busan’s bid.

In addition, the Group’s art cars traveled to major international events, such as the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week in San Francisco, the UN General Assembly in New York, the G20 Summit in New Delhi, India, and the ASEAN Summit in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The Group has actively promoted the Busan World Expo at home and abroad in the digital realm, publishing more than 90 pieces of global content, such as short form videos and card news, to proclaim that Busan is the best city to host the 2030 World Expo.

The ‘Busan Initiative with the Whole World,’ a promotional video for the Busan World Expo that the Group released last month, exceeded 100 million views within 17 days of its release, contributing to the promotion of South Korea’s desire to host the event and Busan’s competitiveness.
